Humpback whale by illugraphy Humpback whale by illugraphy
I did this in 1994 in airbrush-mixed media techniques in 50 x 70 cm.
Selfpromotion work.

Power and exaltation.. pure, and infallible. Humpback whale by ~illugraphy celebrates through stunning realism the grandeur of scale and movement, of monumental proportions, no less! Please enjoy. ( Suggested by BeehiveStudio and Featured by snowmask )

This is traditional painting? I could've sworn it was digital! You definitely deserve the daily deviation for this; you captured the power of a humpback whale breaching so well!
